Holton C mel with new straight neck and Metalpro mpc
Lightweight folding sax stand. Fits alto, C mel or Tenor Bb

Testing a 'Bari' plastic Alto reed . I got the S for soft which should be @ grade 2 but feels more like 2.5 to me. The roughened surface feels like a cut reed and it doesn't need warming up, ready to go anytime. We'll see how it lasts. Sound is not so different from a reed reed.
AquilaSax plastic replacement mouthpieces have a medium facing suitable for beginners and intermediate players and suit a medium reed strength.

Creeds N°2 C Mel reeds
I play with the mouthpiece Aquilasax N°5 on a Aquilasax C Mel for practicing mainly fine.
Otherwise i play with a King C Mel and All Star vintage mouthpiece and Vandoren Reeds N°2
are less noisy and have a softer tone.
Alto reeds N°2 of Aquilasax are very good for me on my Buscher Aristocrat vintage sax and mouthpiece.
Steve. Mp arrived with reeds
All good and its got more sweet tones than a pot of honey.
Tuning is good across the range and it even works well with the hartman carbon tenor reed all be it has a slight buzz in there
Thanks for prompt delivery and quality service. Might look at a metal in the future if its brighter but for my needs the rich tone is fine
Since you asked about my order, I will tell you how it arrived. First the neck is fine, the quality looks good. When I received it, the box looked like it have been run over.
I am happy with the purchase, the shipping was timely and you guys have been good at communicating well during the process.
Everything arrived perfectly, just wonderful. HR C 5 soprano
What affects the Soprano Mouthpiece, I play it with a Selmer Sax 80 Serie Ii
and for me it's easier to play than the original "Selmer C * "
Thanks for everything
I currently own a CA metalpro C melody mouthpiece (#6), and am very satisfied with the sound and intonation it gives me in comparison to the other mouthpieces that I have tried on my horn.
I know that this mouthpiece is compatible with c melody saxes, but is it also compatible with tenor and alto saxes as well (assuming it fits the cork)? Or will major tuning problems arise as I play? I currently do not own any tenor or alto saxes, so I can't really experiment too much. I'm simply just curious about the result. (should work on alto saxes but tuning may vary from sax to sax depending on configuration)
The mouthpiece arrived in Graz,
it sounds great in combination with the new neck on my Conn.
(Widebody Metalpro 6)
Thank you very much,
With best regards
Everything went well. Your package was perfect and the invoice was mounted correct. The fault was made by customs.
I tried the mpc and its great.
Tanks for your service and patience.
You asked me to let you know about the Alto mouthpiece, so I thought I'd give you a report. I have been playing with a sort of Paul Desmond sound, but I recently got asked to play a concert doing some David Sanborn and Grover Washington stuff, so I thought I'd better upgrade. I had already used your metal Soprano mouthpieces, one was a 7 with the full baffle, the other was a 6 without the baffle (an OC I think), which I got because I found the baffle was too much for soprano, and although I regularly use a 7 mouthpiece, I wanted to drop down to a softer setup. So I ordered a 6 for alto. It was perfect, I use #2 reeds (I clip them after a few days), and I get a great modern sound. I can easily get the top notes, more than an octave above the top D, bottom notes easy, tuning good throughout the range. It's a very good mouthpiece.
I'm very happy with it, so I ordered one for my tenor. I currently use a 7 Bari mouthpiece, which I had to extend because it was too sharp. I added a copper tube so it could extend more from the cork. But I want to play more quietly in the big band stuff, so I think the 6 will be better, and I hope the tuning is also. It has been on the soprano and alto mouthpieces.
I think the 6 is a good mid-range opening, it roughly matches the 7 Rico and Bari I have been using, slightly less.
